Is the title of your domain name solely based on SEO and keywords?
Personally, you do not need to create a name where everything is SEO or keywords. Although it might find your website faster than others, you will lack the originality in the name creating.
There are thousands of websites out there that explain SEO and keywords in dept so I will not do this here. Please see the definition of SEO on Wikipedia here.
If you have a look at some of the most famous blogs or websites on the internet today, you will find that most of the names are not really so SEO-related. They are either the names of the creator or in most cases, they are a mix of 2 or 3 words mixed together.
I can take my website for example : Foxyprofit.com
The reason why i have chosen this, and this can be found in the about section of my website, is because i life Foxes ‘Foxy’.
The ‘profit” is a two way meaning to me.
1) As most you would like as well = earning money through your blog or website
2) my readers are gaining profit of me sharing my ideas, my experiences, my products used etc.
It might take you some time to find the RIGHT name for your website but do not overthink it. When the time is right, it will just pop into your mighty brain!
(Just dont forget to write it down!!)
Open up a word document and start writing your articles. Based on the content you are writing, you will be able to think of a great name that suits you, your content, and your readers.
Where can i acquire a domain name?
As I mentioned before, I am not a professional, not even a semi-pro. Just a ‘ beautiful young man’ (coughing) that wanted to start a website, share his idea and make some money on the way. At first, the word domain name for me had no sense and I had heard about a domain name but actually what it was….. I had no clue!
I can tell you that a domain name is just a simple as your website name. You can use .com, .org and many more but .com is the most famous one.
Buy a domain name.
When typing in Google search < Buy domain name>, you will probably need to wait for just 0.64seconds to find about 860.000.000 results. So you can see, there are tons of ways to acquire a domain name. If it is the safest way…… I do not think so.
When speaking with some of my close friends who are professionals in the business, they offered me 2 to 3 different companies where I could check if the domain name was available and purchase it.
After a lot of comparing and finding the most budget friendly option, I went with namecheap.com
The second giant in hosting and domain name would be Bluehost.com. They are both very good providers and they have excellent prices and great customer service. It is up to you to choose. Within this post, I will place a banner for both of them. Just go a comparison yourself in which one suits you best!
Honestly, i have not regretted a bit since i have joined them. Whatever it is you need or you are not clear about something, they will help you out.
They have excellent customer service who listens to your questions and provide you with an accurate reply in a simple way which I was able to understand.
I actually bought my hosting account with them as well.
Having the two combined with the same company is a benefit to me. I do not need to go from site to site to ask for help and to be honest, I believe they are better than the more known websites.
So in this step, you know how to get a domain name. Go to the website and type in the name you want to call your website to check if this is already taken or not. If not, go ahead and purchase it. It will only be about 8$ per YEAR.
